Generator turns by the time
power goes out.
The moment in between
We feel darkness
only after light goes out.
when we loose.
The darkness makes us realise
That we were in light so far
but we never come to appreciate it,
during it’s presence.
Later generator turns on,
it is not the same as power
Yet something to fill it’s space
during it’s absence.
After a long time cool breeze struck at night.
It was both intimidating and heavy.
Heavy enough to push a lot of things at home
which were by now used to the static environment.
The breeze was deafening
But yet it was welcomed.
We opened our doors and came out
to feel the cool breeze outside.
Its been a long time to see
so many residents out in their balconies.
Laughter and cries of children
were growing louder.
A day that we have all longed for so long.
In the moonlight
everything seems to be perfect.
Simplest of things gain their grace
with the presence of mighty moon.
In spite of all its might, it projects itself small
For we feel it our true companion.
As a tiny tot,
it ensures our well being
by ensuring we eat our nutritious dinner.
As a young-boy,
it enlights our imagination
with the overwhelming stories.
As a young man,
it reminds us of our pal
whom we dearly love.
As a man
it reminds the wonderful time with your parents
who live far off.
As an old man,
it reminds you of the olden days with retrospect.
Gone are the days when we used letter,
came the age of Whatsapp.
Gone are the days of trunk call,
came the age of Skype.
But remains same from time immemorial
is our true companion
